Still, did anyone find that moment tough? Yet beautiful?  

probably the most "open" (for lack of a better/accurate word) I've seen Bono in a lot of time...

 

they - or at least him - must be doing a lot of thinking these days...

 

 

He seemed a bit down to me

MacFoley']Why did Bono say the band is coming to an end?

He didn't say it was coming to an end.  He said that it was on the verge of irrelevance - think Oldie Band and "Yeah I used to really like them back in the day" - and that they were going to have to keep pushing and re-inventing themselves to stay relevant.  That's my take on it anyway

 

My thought exactly. I think that's why they haven't released another album with everything they have. Want to really release something new for them. Makes sense.

He seemed a bit down to me

I sensed that too. It seemed to me that he either hated the film, or Davis Guggenheim. or both.

And so the rumors begin...

 

Just seen several posts on FB and Twitter with information from this interview that I didn't hear.

 

Band never going to tour again... may release another album but never play in public again...

 

Its the end of the tour, Bono is tired (late night, tired of talking about U2 after the tour... who knows?)... I say give them a few months off because hell, after that long on the road you might not feel like playing for a while, then we'll see...

 

Like Max said... patience... zen

Well, sure, but I just can't recall him actually praising the film or director *at all*. Hope you're right!
